Busby's Spring Dream

David Busby

"I always loved (Oregon's) uniforms," said Texas defensive back David Busby. "I'd watch them every Saturday to see what they'd be wearing. And I love the fast pace they play with. That's how we play." He also favors Baylor and Nebraska and lives about three hours from the Bears. "I'd love to go to any of those schools. I want to be comfortable and go where it feels like home. I need to get..."

David Busby, the 5-foot-11, 179-pound three-star cornerback/defensive back from Coppell, Texas, does not have any scholarship offers yet, but believes he'll get some during the spring recruiting period.

Growing up Busby says he followed Oregon and UCLA. "I always loved (Oregon's) uniforms," Busby said about the Ducks. "I'd watch them every Saturday to see what they'd be wearing.

"And I love the fast pace they play with," he said. "That's how we play."

Busby said he now favors Baylor, Nebraska and Oregon solidly over SMU and Iowa. He says that all five are recruiting him, especially Baylor.

"I really like their defensive schemes," he said. "I like how they play a lot of freshman and they've got a great coaching staff."

He says he lives about three hours from Baylor. "They are gonna come see me soon for spring practice," he said about the Bears. "They said they want to evaluate me in person."

Busby says he'd consider committing if either of his top three offered him. "I'd definitely think about it," he said. "I'd love to go to any of those schools."

The only junior day that Busby attended was Oklahoma's, but the Sooners are not recruiting him much.

He lives about 45 minutes away from SMU and besides Baylor, the Mustangs are the only other school he has already visited. "They have a great academic program," he said. "The football program is coming up too."

Busby says that distance is not a factor.

"I want to be comfortable and go where it feels like home," he said. "I need to get along with the coaches and players and have a great bond with them."

Although he plans to attend camps during the summer he's not sure which ones yet.

"I'll go to a few for sure," he said.

One place he says he'd like to visit is Nebraska. "There's just something about them," he said about the Cornhuskers. "I like them a lot. They play a lot of zone and they are known for their defense."

Out of all the schools in Busby's top five he says that he's hearing the least from Iowa. "I haven't really talked to any of their coaches yet," he admitted.

Busby finished his junior season with 105 tackles and seven interceptions.

"I can get to the ball and I can usually make the big play," he said. "I can cover well and I'm great at man coverage."

He says he can bench 245-pounds, squat 335 and has a 32-inch vertical jump.

"I want to improve my footwork and have better technique," he said. "I'm working on tackling big running backs better."

He reports a 4.1 (out of 5.0) core GPA and is taking the SAT on June 11.
